In the presidential race of 2016, Sanders, Clinton had a tough go of it, even though the white-haired gentleman has long been regarded as an outsider and taken to the start of the primaries a little serious. However, Sanders became a kind of icon of the left youth. In the pre-election campaign the students in droves to ran to him.

More are in the wings. Even with the candidacy of the Ex-Vice-President, Joe Biden, to many to count. In the case of the Republicans has so far declared only Trump that he can compete again.

The many democratic candidates to speak very similar voters milieus and make each other’s voices in dispute. Left-wing and moderate candidates, including some reserved for more, some offensive-aggressive in their rhetoric towards the government.
